Ten Minutes to Bed, Little Unicorn

Publisher: Ladybird Books

Review

It’s ten minutes to bedtime, but Twinkle the little unicorn is showing no sign of sleepiness as her dad counts down the minutes from ten to one. Instead, she’s far too busy frisking around the marshmallow-cloud, pink sugar sandy land of the unicorns – dancing, prancing and chasing pixies and sprites.

Yet when she races after a shooting star, Twinkle gets lost… and it’s getting closer and closer to her bedtime.

This bedtime read, which features a rhyming countdown, is just the thing to help little ones wind down at the end of a busy day.
